As one of the most important events and trade fairs for Fair Trade in Germany, the Conference of German World Shops took place in Bad Hersfeld, Germany, from 28th to 30th June 2019. Our member El Puente and others took initiative to ensure that WFTO was well represented at the fair.

As a longstanding WFTO member, it is important for El Puente, along with other Fair Trade companies, that WFTO is represented worldwide with its principles and its key role within the Fair Trade movement. In order to ensure this presence at the Conference of the German World Shops, our members GEPA, WeltPartner, Globo and El Puente in coordination with Weltladen Dachverband, the association for German world shops, developed a leaflet which highlights how the WFTO network strengthens the Fair Trade movement. The leaflet was printed in German and handed out to the visitors of the fair.

WFTO-Europe would like to thank all the members who contributed and endorsed the leaflet. We are very proud to represent a network that is so committed to our principles and we strongly endorse this proactive membership approach.
